A truly wonderful novel about therapist, clients and the ambiguity of the realtionship between them. It's described as a "psychological thriller" and the story revolves around the therapist Ernest, his supervisor Marshall and Carol / Carolyn. It gives real insight into the issue surrounding therapy. It has particuarly resonance with me because the novel contains lots of the issues that my masters thesis deals with; namely the client / helper relationship. Will definitely read other novels / books by Yalom.

Favourite quote:
"Carl Rogers used to say, 'Don't waste your time training therapists - time is better spent in selecting them.'"(p.6)
